According to the band's official bio, Adastra is "a modern heavy metal band that derives its influences from a wide range of class acts. Old-school-style clean-vocals of Ville Siikamäki, combined with the rapid leads and heavy riffs of Olli Anttila and Jari Hartman and the steady pulse of Santeri Vauramo's bass, controlled by the precise drumming of Jussi Ruokolainen, create the music of Adastra."
